Come join us in the heart of Northwest Tribal Culture! This writer's conference brings together a diverse selection of panels and concurrent workshop sessions. Our location is the exquisite, rugged Pacific coastline of the Quileute Indian Nation, on Hwy 101 just four hours from Seattle or Portland. The rustic resort has a wide range of accommodations. "Some of the best rooms anywhere on this stretch of coast," says Frommer's Review. Some cabins have whirlpool tubs, walls of glass, cedar carved accents, and kitchens for meal preparation in your room. The resort features a very nice restaurant dockside, excellent seafood dinners, and souvenir wine glasses.
